Housing Market

The housing market has stayed quite stable this year, continuing with lower sales volumes and with depressed house prices. However, there are some indications that 2012 may end more postively. The NewBuy Scheme and planning reforms should help with supply and could lead to an increase in the number of houses being built. This will help to breathe new life into the market.'s House Price Index monitors changes in house prices both monthly and annually, this gives a clear view on the current state of the property market.

Octobers figures show a jump in new seller average asking prices of 3.5% (+£8,310), which is the biggest increase for 8 months.

The average price of a property to go on the market during October was £243,168 which is an increase of 1.5% from October last year.

In Bristol we have lots of new build developments being built, many of which have the NewBuy Scheme & First Buy options, these schemes will hopefully help to encourage the Bristol housing market and boost the market nationally.

Move Day Has Arrived

The Small Move Company are in the process of moving office as I write!

We are only moving within the same building but it's a good reminder of how stressful moving can be, some would say it's a taste of our own medicine!

Our phone provider have cut off our phone line before activating our new line something that we were promised wouldn't happen so it's been a very stressful morning so far, we have now managed to have a divert on at least so won't be missing any more calls.

On the plus side we are looking forwards to getting in to the new office which is at the back of Richmond House, as it will be much quieter. Our existing office is on the front of the building and the main road of the industrial estate, Avonmouth Way is a busy noisy road.

Apologies to anyone who tried to contact us this morning (01.11.2012) whilst the phone was ringing your end, it wasn't our end.

Finally I can confirm that the removal side of our move went perfectly - as you would expect from Bristol's best removal company.
